  1. Hi Helen,
    Very much appreciated. No, all books are not available, and Carol’s books are not. There is a symbol “Buy directly from the Author” on those that are available.
    If you buy from Amazon through the links on our website we get a tiny commission on the sale. 🙂

  2. Hi
    I would like to support you & your authors (rather than amazon) by buying directly from you but can’t see a link on your website for the following books by Carol Barton: The Pocket Paper Engineer Vols 1 & 2. Are they available?
    Thanks & regards,
    Helen Stapleton
